After this version of Mason's how could they have ever stopped playing it. Guess they thought it just couldn't get better.

Really had fun listening to this. The acoustic stuff is so pure it baffles me how unbelievably good it sounds. The electric songs are no slouch either. Plenty of brilliance, and the unusual set order makes for plenty of suspense with Lovelight finishing the show off proper. Great recording, shut my eyes and imagined being there. Awesome stuff.

A nice little Lovelight sandwich to fill all your needs of the great 1970 Dead. I love their acoustic sets of 1970 and even though this one is short, it is still excellent. Mason's Children is nice, with an influenced Jumpin' Jack Flash intro.
This one has its moments, an interesting Lovelight sandwich. The short acoustic set, abbreviated due to monitor issues, is still pretty sweet, particularly Little Sadie and what might be the best ever acoustic Black Peter.
Some nice jamming during The Other One, but this really doesnt catch fire, or hold any momentum for very long. Still, the sound/mix is excellent. (96 pts)

Speaking of Mason's Children....
I never noticed it in any of the other versions of the song (I'll have to go back and listen), but when listening to this one I noticed that you could lay the opening of The Stone's 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' (which is also the primary theme in the verse) over the intro and it would fit perfectly. JJF came out in '68, so I doubt that there was any intentional "flattery" going on in either direction, but it is interesting when one realizes that two groups acid-ifying the blues from two totally different directions could have arrived at such a similar place.
Kudos -- as always -- to Mr. Cotsman for an excellent seed. As others have noted, a great recording of an excellent show!

Why compulsively listen chronologically to the Dead?
"Certainly in the case of the Dead, there's value in studying the evolution over time."

Indeed. The beginning of Mason sounds just like "Satisfaction". I don't know about through the whole thing since I just sampled each tune to make sure they downloaded fully. Sounds like a great show though. Good mix, good setlist with a little acoustic set thrown in.
Mason's Children has always been a favorite of mine. I always wish it would go on for about 12-15 minutes cause the jams always get me going (like a good "Dancin' in the Streets" from this era, as a matter of fact there's a good Dancin' from the night before so get that show too).
The Last Masons? Say it ain't so Jerry. Why did they stop doin' it?

DOES ANYONE ELSE HEAR "SATISFACTION" THROUGHOUT MASONS?

Super hot !
Hey I think this is a really underrated show. Not the best of 1970 but definatley worth checking out. THe sound Quality and dynamics are excellent. Lots of range and a super mix. You can hear all instruments clearly , especially Phil. The bass is not thumpy at all but taught.
Alligator>Drums>Other one> Masons? Come on !
Roger that !
very hot. 4 star performance and 4 and a half on sound.

This is a "nice" show: a lot of variety with the acoustic stuff in the middle of the set. Quality is good, but the band doesn't really get heated up until the Other One. Not to say it's not worth listening to, it is! Overall, I liked it.
